I am dating a guy who is gonna inherit the family business. As of right now he is pretty loaded, not like filthy filthy filthy filthy rich but definitely rich enough.So as betch I dont really plan to get a job although I would kill it in the corporate world. So in that sense he sort of is a keeper. I go to a top uni.
However, he hasn't been to university and isnt very intellectual. He doesnt really read any books, is not my intellectual equal and it can be rather embarrassing when we are out socialising with my friends especially since all of them have been to university or are at uni. It's almost as though he cant really sustain a conversation. However, he is devoted to me though and spoils me rotten. I am in such a predicament.
I do feel incredibly loved in so many ways and am constantly showered with gifts, love and affection. However, I need witty banter from a man. I need a man who is smart enough to know about the world of finance-this one doesnt know jack. How is he possibly gonna take the family business to the next level or be able to generate moolah if he isnt very smart?
Help! Should I stay or leave?
Dear Confused Betch,
I highly doubt you would 'kill it' in the corporate world no matter how apt you are to brag about it. That's because people in the corporate world understand risk, which you seem to be totally lacking in. In addition to making you a bad person, dating someone for their money is inherently risky and doesn't consider many factors. First off, your guy could either a) totally fuck up his family business, b) realize you're a gold digging whore and dump you within the next year or c (and worst of all) he isn't as dumb as you say and actually demands the dreaded prenup. Now considering you don't even like him that much and you're not even married to him yet, I'd say divorce (on the off chance you get him to propose) is inevitable.
So my advice to you is to get a real job or find someone you actually like whose money is just a nice perk and not the whole fucking reason you're dating them. Although it's true that everyone eventually gets boring but rich bros get boring slower, there's nothing worse than dating a guy who's opinion you don't respect and who brings as much to the conversation as Lamar Odom.
Get a job,
